Willow in the winter

Earlier this month Willow waited to hear  my wishes on which way to go, the lower pond path or the upper.  That was a wonderful snowy morning, but today is woefully without snow as we wend our way to Christmas.  We are witnessing fog and rain and temperatures quite above normal.  So the lyrics of the Wassail Song are very appropriate to our winter weather:

Here we come a-wassailing
Among the leaves so green,
Here we come a-wand'ring
So fair to be seen.
Love and joy come to you,
And to you your wassail, too,
And God bless you, and send you
A Happy New Year,
And God send you a Happy New Year.

Whoops, I got ahead of myself.  Let Good King Wenceslas and me wish you a very Merry Christmas, first with Robert Shaw Chorale

and then wigging out with Mannheim Steamroller.  Happy Holidays to all!

Many more holiday wishes await you at ABC Wednesday!


  1. And I thought Robert Shaw was just the actor who played Quint (Jaws). ;-)

    Lovely choral music. Fitting on this foggy, London-esque day.

  2. I think that photo of Willow should be your Christmas card for next year! Go for it!

  3. WOW, a WEALTH of songs of WINTER!

  4. I love the winter shot! Wishing you and your family a wonderful, warm, cozy holiday!

  5. Well written. Reminded me of Pogo's "Good King Wenceslas looked down, on his feets uneven..."
